Jay-Z has broken his silence about the infamous elevator fight with his sister-in-law Solange Knowles after the 2014 Met Gala.
“We’ve had one disagreement ever,” the rapper clarified in an interview with Rap Radar on Sunday night. “Before and after, we’ve been cool. She’s like my sister. I will protect her. That’s my sister. Not my sister-in-law. My sister.”
Hov continued: “We’ve always had a great relationship. I fought my brothers and argued with my brothers my whole life. It just so happens, who we are, these things go into a different space, but it ain’t nothing.”
The footage, which showed Solange kicking and striking Jay, was leaked a week after the incident occurred by an employee who reportedly sold it to TMZ for $250,000. The employee was subsequently fired.
According to multiple reports online, Solange was angry over Jay’s alleged infidelity when she attacked.
